About Me

I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

Exciting Reveal

K&S and I made our way to MFM today for the anatomy scan accompanied by my husband Jason, both grandmas and a grandpa-to-be.  The short version is that everything looked wonderful.  Both Baby A and Baby B are growing right on schedule and measuring just days ahead.  All major organs are perfect and they were busy and active throughout the entire appointment.  After being scanned by the u/s tech Dr. Yang, one of the periontologist who will be overseeing my care due to this being multiples,  came in to take a look for himself and again gave the thumbs up that they were both looking wonderful.  The only thing of mention was that they typically like to see the umbilical cord insertion on the placenta to be centered and in our case - and forgive me because I can't recall which baby he was referencing or if it was on both - it is off to the side.  It's not a concern at the time but just something to monitor.

Of course everyone has been anxiously awaiting gender news and today we got a peek.  Ironically after having four girls myself, apparently I carry the opposite gender as a surro because K&S are expecting ...


That's right, it's two lil guys for my wonderful IPs.

Along with this news I'm also revealing a new look for the blog.  Thank you so much Cara for the new design!!
